Israeli War a Mix of Sex, Lust and Death

One of the images of the Standing with the IDF Facebook page

Israeli women have added a new bizarre twist to Operation Protective Edge.  They’ve pledged their bodies in explicit photos published on Facebook to the soldiers fighting on behalf of the homeland.  Add this to the Israeli calls to sexually brutalize Palestinian mothers and calls in Israeli social media to figuratively rape Gaza and you have a heady mix of sex, violence and death.

The pictures Israeli women displayed on Facebook remind me of the German World War II images of pure Aryan maidens waiting to mate with their Teutonic male counterparts and produce exemplary Aryan children.  It smacked of the Nazi purity of race doctrine.  To be sure, the Israeli women aren’t proclaiming their racial superiority.  But they’re certainly offering their bodies on the altar of Israeli patriotism.

“Hamas in my ass”

What’s missing is any hint of the death these boys they purport to love are raining down on Gaza.  These images reinforce the life force (sex); but deny the death that the enemy faces at the hands of these IDF Adonises.  They also deny the death that faces IDF troops themselves, 33 of whom have died.  The nexus between sex, lust, and death is very strong in these images.

I suppose you could argue that the Facebook images are versions of the pin-up girl photos circulated to U.S. troops during World War II to remind them of the girls they left behind.  But in those pictures, the models never offered their bodies so explicitly and never seemed to be bartering their bodies on behalf of the war effort.

Another bizarre characteristic of the images is that very few display the faces of the women pictured.  They either display breasts, crotch or the behind.  Which leaves you with the eerie feeling that once the troops return they won’t be enjoying sex with women, but only with parts of their bodies.  This goes to the dysfunctional nature of relations between the sexes in Israeli society.  But that’s a different subject entirely.

    Such a story is off-topic … ask the Japanese and their comfort women.

    Ask any warrior of an invading army, the soldiers have the right to rape, plunder once victorious in battle. How else can these men make such sacrifices, it almost beats going to heaven and be rewarded by virgins. Wow,wow.

    In war it is the civilian population, mostly consisting of the women and children, that suffer the most. It was not by chance that 100 years ago, the peace movement consisted of women in their leadership to end war and obtain voting rights: the suffrage movement. See Carnegie’s endowment for the Peace Palace in The Hague.

    The peace institutes studying war to end war have been taken over by neocons with an agenda. In The Netherlands, a renowned peace institute Clingendael has suffered from such a change.

    I don’t understand Obama and his amazon warriors in the White House advocating R2P policy and ending up with Libya, Syria, Gaza and Ukraine. A very disturbing turn of events in the (western) world.

    These Israeli sexual campaigns resemble more the alleged “sex jihad” of Syrian rebels than the Nazi analog. The Syrian “sex jihad” may have been a hoax:

    it is interesting that you seem to pick up all the trash. is there nothing good in Israel like soldiers going to fight for their people?

    • Bakunin July 25, 2014, 11:27 AM

      You do realize the actual Walter Benjamin would consider you a lunatic and would condemn the Gaza war right?

      • Richard Silverstein July 25, 2014, 5:29 PM

        @ Bakunin: I already wrote that to him. I think either he doesn’t know who Walter Benjamin is; or else he’s obtuse (which the real Walter Benjamin very much wasn’t).

    • Richard Silverstein July 25, 2014, 5:33 PM

      @ walter benjamin: How is 40,000 Israeli soldiers invading a country and killing nearly 1,000 Gazans “fighting for their people?” Sorry, it does NOT compute.

      As for “trash:” who creates the trash? Me? I just report it. Don’t blame the messenger, baby. Blame the (Israeli) guy who made the stupid choice to begin with.

      • David July 27, 2014, 11:13 AM

        “Walter” doesn’t mean “fighting for his people” in the way most might interpret it. He means “fighting for the state, for the Zionist State.” They are fighting to advance the Zionist enterprise not to protect Jewish lives (you and I are safe, are we not?). The IDF is the terror arm of Zionism, not Judaism, and to this extent these young people are simply used by the political echelon. Surveying the constituents of that echelon is a chilling experience.

    • Nimrod July 26, 2014, 5:14 AM

      That’s Oscar the Grouch Jr for you , I’m following Richard for quite a while because of his insider (sellouts) sources who bring the occasional scoop ,and I can say you will never ,ever, EVER say something half good about Israel . Makes you wonder how he pays his bills ,I contemplate either shin bet disinfo operative or Qatari /euro left money addict on the take and the last one – ultra hyper self hating Jew .

      • Richard Silverstein July 26, 2014, 11:53 AM

        Of all the insults I’ve heard, being called Oscar the. Grouch is the funniest. You made my son laugh too who’s reading this now.

        As for my paymaster, he just delivered the latest truckload of Qatari cash. This shipment was a little light: only $100-million. I need to figure out what to do with all this cash. Any ideas?

      • David July 27, 2014, 11:20 AM

        I contend that the “self-hating” Jews are the Zionists who turned their back on the Diaspora Jewish life out of contempt, contempt for the variety and wisdom of that “exile.” Like other racists, Zionists reacted to a stereotype, enforcing that stereotype by their own contempt, “self-hate.” The new model, another stereotype of limited applicability, has nothing on the former at all: In many ways, he/she are soulless people, capable of mass murder, just like many Germans (who also hated the old stereotype!) These varying ideologies all lead to the same terminus, don’t they?

  • walter benjamin July 25, 2014, 9:49 AM

    quote from JPost:
    “Residents of the Gaza Strip lit fireworks and chanted “God is great!” into the early morning darkness on Monday after Hamas’s claims of capturing the soldier.”
    This is why we will never be able to make peace with people? like this.

    • Daniel Rocha July 25, 2014, 9:58 AM

      I don’t see anything wrong with that. They are not celebrating death, but a *peaceful* way to get back people arrested without charges.

      • KKND July 25, 2014, 12:32 PM

        It’s a common knowledge all of the Palestinians prisoners are “people arrested without charges”… I thought at least some of them are the most brutal, sadist and sociopaths murderess the world have ever seen but what do i know…

        • Daniel Rocha July 25, 2014, 12:41 PM

          Yeah, you pretty much don’t know much, after all, you evoked Goldwin’s law without even noticing. And even if it was true, you said *some*, that means, you don’t care if innocents were imprisoned. Note that this is not even remotely similar to the case of collateral damage.

          • KKND July 25, 2014, 1:25 PM

            You won’t recognize irony even it will hit you in the face…

          • Daniel Rocha July 25, 2014, 1:32 PM

            It’s better to use emoticons.

        • Richard Silverstein July 25, 2014, 5:52 PM

          @ KKND:

          what do i know

          Not much. If you think Israel only arrests Palestinians who are sadist, sociopaths & murderers you haven’t read this blog very carefully. I’ve documented scores of prisoners arrested for no reason, imprisoned for no reason. Often without charges being brought, without being found guilty. Those aren’t sadists or sociopaths. BTW, there are many Israeli Jewish sadists & sociopaths who are not even in Israeli prisons, let alone Palestinian ones. They walk the streets free after killing & maiming innocent Palestinian civilians. Maybe you ought to pay a bit more attention to them than to Palestinians about who you appear to know nothing.

          You activated my hasbara detector. You know what that means.

    • Richard Silverstein July 25, 2014, 5:32 PM

      @ walter benjamin: This is why I should moderate you. Why do you think Gazans cheer when a soldier is captured? Because they like to make a sport of it just for the hell of it? Or because Israel is invading their country? I got news for ya chum, when one country invades another the victim has every right to resist. That’s what Hamas is doing and it has every right to do so. It is neither Hamas’ nor Gaza’s obligation to lie down and say to the IDF, please f_^k me. It is their obligation to resist, which they are doing.

      If you publish another such dimwited comment here I’ll moderate you.

      • Aijaz July 26, 2014, 5:26 PM

        Good Reply Buddy! Non sense arguments from Walter Bejamin and KKND but you handled them very well. They might be the partners of those Israeli Murderers. Anyone who is supporting this massacre directly or indirectly is Israel’s partner in crime.
        Thanks for exposing their true dirty mentality.

      • walter benjamin July 27, 2014, 4:53 AM

        • Dana July 28, 2014, 1:59 AM

          Oh, get off it!

          The images of Palestinians “celebrating” 9/11 is pure Zionist propaganda. It didn’t take long to demonstrate that the video was made long before 9/11. You know, like, digital imprints and such?

          On the other hand, the 5 Israeli agents cheering and high-fiving the attack on the first World Trade Center tower was confirmed by the clowns themselves, on Israeli television, saying “We were there to document the event”. How about that?

          Good grief …

  • Daniel Rocha July 25, 2014, 10:07 AM

    BTW, maybe I am wrong, but it’s much more common to see so many male Arab Jews in the army rather in other occupation, at least in the pictures and videos?

    And promoting very sexual pictures of woman in the army, isn’t it putting them in danger or rape? They are supposed to go into war, and rape is a common tool of torture or vengeance.

  • Adriana July 25, 2014, 2:21 PM

    As a woman , I would say that is very disgusting seeing women humiliating themselves like that and behaving like a piece of meat , sexual toys.

  • Arie Brand July 25, 2014, 3:44 PM

    Exactly Adriana. And the tattoos on it look like the marks you see in a butcher shop. I find this whole theme of “our heroes going into battle” disgusting and ridiculous – a colonial police operation with, by military standards, minimal risks for the aggressors, but lauded as if it were the battle of Gettysburg (46,000 killed – 23,000 on BOTH sides)

  • PersianAdvocate July 25, 2014, 9:24 PM

    There is no shock left in me for surprise. Everything Israel does is the exact reversal of morals universally agreed upon by the rest of humanity and natural to human instinct. Am I wrong when I say God’s covenant was never in condition for a land, but rather, that the people follow his commandments? These are the Golden Calf worshippers, the ones who would fashion a phallus and worship it.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if they ate their own boogers. Some of this looks like cheap smut porn apt for Craigslist. There’s nothing sexy about beating women and children. If that’s sexy, what would the girls think of Hezbollah who kicked the IDF’s ass in 2006? Take on real foe, Israel. WALK your manliness, don’t talk it.

  • jjcostandi July 26, 2014, 12:53 AM

    methinks the IDF is just trying to promote jewish masturbation …
    i’m all for it. it will definitely cut down on IDF jewish rapes …
